I Reject Your Reality and Substitute My Own: Information Access and Civil Discourse in the Digital Age - Presented by Brandy Horne
Register
In this webinar, Brandy Horne will outline different factors that can influence, and even hinder, our ability to access information in a digital environment, and she’ll discuss how the information we do access can ultimately impact our ability to engage in civil discourse. Finally, addressing some possibly conflicting directives from ALA documents, such as the Core Values of Librarianship and the Code of Ethics, she’ll look at how libraries might strike a balance between showing patrons how to find the information they need and helping them to find the information they want.

About the Presenter:
  • Brandy Horne works in the Gregg-Graniteville Library at the University of South Carolina Aiken as an Instruction and Reference Librarian, and she is currently the Secretary of the CSRA Library Association. In addition to presenting at the Georgia COMO conference three years in a row, Brandy was a speaker at TEDx Telfair Street in Augusta in 2014.
Audience: All Type of Libraries

Little Old Ladies and Rock Star Librarians: Genderizing the Librarian Stereotype - Presented by Ayanna Gaines
Register
This webinar is based off of the author’s chapter “That’s Women’s Work: Pink-Collar Professions, Gender, and the Librarian Stereotype,” published in the ACRL publication The Librarian Stereotype: Deconstructing Perceptions & Presentations of Information Work. She will discuss how the stereotyping of librarianship not only harms the profession with regards to status and pay equity, but is also detrimental to both genders.

About the Presenter:
  • Ayanna Gaines is Associate Librarian at Ventura College in Ventura, CA. She earned her Bachelor’s Degree in English from Brown University in Providence, RI, and her Master’s Degree in Library and Information Science from Dominican University in River Forest, IL. As much as she wants to tweak the librarian stereotype, she has two cats and several cardigans.
Audience: All Type of Libraries
